Are you allergic to any thing or any food? For me, I'm allergic to woollen clothes and in particular,dust. Once I'm in contact with these two, I'll be sneezing my head off and start sniffling. It's a good thing I'm not allergic to any food so far as I enjoy eating. How about you? What are you allergic to?

I'm somewhat allergic to cats/dogs/dander. I have seasonal allergies. I'm allergic to a particular facial scrub that makes me get a rash on my face. There was also a sun block I used one that made me break out all over my body when I was younger. I think that's about it.

I have a friend who's also allergic to cat's fur but she loves cats so much. What a shame!

It doesn't stop me from having cats. Cats are animals I really love, and unless my allergies were so bad that I couldn't open my eyes, or I couldn't breathe or something, I'm not getting rid of my cats. :D

I'm allergic to pollen and cats. It's a real shame that I'm allergic to cats because I've always loved them. When I was a little girl, I didn't have this allergy to cats, it's something I grew into. If a cat gets up in my face, it won't be long until my breathing is affected. :(

I'm no allergic to anything. But, since I have cough for the whole week now, my doctor suspect that I have allergy. Maybe from dust, smoking people, and lots of influence by my workplace. I think I need to break for a while and later continue with myLot. There's somebody smoking. ~sigh

I used to be allergic to milk when I was about 10. That was sad because I couldn't have chocolate or ice cream or any fun stuff like that. I remember I could only have chocolate once a month. I had to take shots every couple weeks to get rid of the allergies, and it went away. But it's back now. Now I'm allergic to milk again, and corn, wheat, and soy. Those things are in EVERYTHING. But I still eat it all. lol. Because it's not that serious. Nothing really happens. So it's fine.

Oh dear! It must be very tough on you having to take shots every few weeks to get rid of all your allergies. Anyway ,it's good that you can still take food that you like and nothing happens to you:)

The boy is also allergic to eggs and intollernt to milk and soy. The girl is also allergic to cats and thankfully out grew her egg allergy.

Oh dear, so the boy can't take any thing which has milk as one of the ingredients in it, like cakes and cookies?

I am allergic to caffeine. Drinking half a cup of coffee is enough to make my heart palpitate for half a day and I'll feel nervous and anxious for no apparent reason. However, chocolate and coke have no such effect on me. Perhaps it didn't contain that much caffeine and I take them in small portion.

It's a good thing I have no such reactions from drinking coffee because I need to have a cup of it every morning :)

I am allergic to dust.I cannot stay at a place where there is dust as immediately I will start sneezing and coughing.I also cannot tolerate a dusty blanket and sometimes it causes a lot of problem to me.I acn catch cold easily and for most part of the year I am suffering from cold and coughs.Though coughs and cold are quite common problems but they are the most irritating also. Just because of these I have to take great care when I visit someone's place at other city.I have to explain my problem to everyone as nobody likes a person constantly sneezing and coughing.Further it leaves a bad impression on others.I hope someday I will get rid of these problems.

I'm allergic to some antibiotics. I realise I had this allergic when once I got sicked, and went to doctor, and after I ate the antibiotic from the doctor, first reaction was my eyes become itchy, and then all body, and I sneeze, I almost hard to breath because my heart got fast beat, after that I realised that my face was swollen, and I lost my voice. What a disaster... But... what amazed me, my laryngitis is cured suddenly. First I still thought that I was poisoned, but after that I knew that my body can't stand with some antibiotics. It's to heavy for my body, and I've been had this allergic disaster 3 times... oh boy... So now... if I go to doctor, I said I don't need any antibiotics except only one antibiotic that safe for me, because I've eaten that since I was a kid.

I do not think I am allergic to anything...then again I wouldn't really know. Unless I start having some rash or something. How does one figure an allergy out other than having an allergy test done?
